Fried From Eggs
I was on the bus home from a miserable Monday and in between pages of “The Perfect Meal” chapter of Omnivore’s Dilemma, I thought about my dinner. 80P would be at class, so I was on my own — to put a fried egg on anything I’d want. And then as I was cooking up my meal, and styling it, and playing the part of the photog, I thought about ES readers. And just how you all might be sick of seeing me cook something and then put a sunny side up egg over top. But, I’ll let you decide…

But before you judge my fried egg fate, let me tell you about what I made.
Mashers, Kale and Yolk
With leftover mashed potatoes (by my brother for Rosh Hashanah dinner, simply milk, butter, salt and pepper) I warmed them up in the broiler and then kept them warm in a 250 degree oven. While that was heating up, I sauteed onion and garlic and then kale, with oil, salt and pepper and a few dashes of soy*. When the greens just started to become tender, I dropped in a few teaspoons of water to finish the job. After that steamed out, I took the mashers out of the oven and swung them around in a circle on my plate. I dumped the greens in the circle and then quickly fried an egg in the same pan (adding a smidge of butter.) I of course, topped the greens and mashers with the fried egg. Sprinkled with salt and pepper and drizzled with Sriracha* sauce.
Okay, so this dish is pretty unique (fried egg on mashers?!?!) But I do understand if you’re sick of reading about my fried egg obsession. So, do tell.
Does using soy and Sriracha make something Asian? Probably not. But I’ll tag anyway.
